One of my fellow club memberes asked me a funny question…’why is it that my legs seem to be getting longer every day?’ I asked him what he meant and he said that it seemed to get harder to reach his feet each day to put his socks on! Many people find their legs ‘getting longer’ as they get older but what is really going on?? Well simply their hips are getting a bit stiffer and their muscles a bit tighter. Usually this can be improved by a simple programme of daily movement through range and simple stretches. Some people do these before they get out of bed….then their legs won’t seem so long when getting dressed!
If you keep those muscles and soft tissues supple then you’ll find your legs don’t ‘grow’ each night!!
A stretch a day keeps the leg growth at bay!!
